Protracted Brain Dysfunction after Alcohol Withdrawal in Monkeys
The alcohol withdrawal syndrome includes a broad spectrinn of severity. The milder stages of the syndrome include such symptoms as slight tremor, malaise and general irritability, and the more severe stages of the syndome are characterized by delirium tremors. While the nature of the underlying mechanisms is not established, the evidence presently available suggests that there may well be different mechanisms for different manifestations associated with withdrawal.
